A humming treat...
You must have been asking yourself whether mrslittlejeans would post a picture that does not include her cats. She would say that the question was indeed a fair one. But don't give up too quickly.
Today you are treated to a beautiful humming bird photograph. This picture was taken by my scientist colleague Angel Di Bilio, who took up photography on the side last year, and I must say, he takes beautiful pictures. You can check out his work right here . He has me so tempted to pick up photography, and I just have to make a mental note to add photography to my list of goals, which only include learning spanish, making handmade soap, and reading more.
Speaking of goals, I am suddenly reminded of this french word I just learned today from Kristin Espinasse of French Word a Day(here), velléité (vay-lay-ee-tay), which means 'vague desire, impulse, whim', 'a desire that does not become realized'. I hope none of our goals become des velléités, and that they all become realized. How do you realize your goals?
Bon Vendredi a tous!
